Everyone is abuzz at the rare feat that is Guardians of the Galaxy winning the box office for its fourth week as the nation's top film.
But, there was a time when films were number one a bit longer than that. Actually we found 19 movies and some of them were number one for four times that length!
We all know the film that you can see when you watch Avatar online is the top grossing movie of all time. Did you know that it was number one for seven weeks? And did you know that there are 10 films that sat at number one longer than that James Cameron blockbuster?
Watch Titanic online and there's another Cameron smash hit that was the number one movie in the land -- and it still isn't the film that holds the record for most weeks at number one!
Click through and check out our 19 movies that topped the box office longer than Guardians of the Galaxy has with its four-week, chart-topping run.
Michael Keaton as a stay at home dad equaled box office success. It sat at number one for five weeks back in 1983.
When we reported last month about an all-female Ghostbusters happening as a reboot, we had to wonder what some of the original stars of the film thought of the idea. Now, we know.
Bill Murray was at the Toronto Film Festival, promoting his work on St. Vincent (and enjoying Bill Murray day) and he was asked by The Star that very question.
"Melissa (McCarthy) would be a spectacular Ghostbuster,” Murray said. “And Kristen Wiig is so funny - God, she's funny! I like this girl Linda Cardellini (Mad Men) a lot. And Emma Stone is funny. There are some funny girls out there."
Given how Murray was resistant to join a Ghostbusters 3, it sure sounds like Murray would give his original Ghostbuster blessing to such an incarnation.
"I'm fine with it, I would go to that movie,” Murray said. And ever the comedian, he leaves us with this. “They'd probably have better outfits, too."
Watch Ghostbusters online and check out the classic original and click through the slideshow below for 30 things you probably didn’t know about that iconic film.
Aykroyd, who wrote the original script, penned it as a salute to his grandfather, who was a paranormal buff who even built a radio to try to contact ghosts.
Of all the accolades that Jennifer Lawrence has earned in her (relatively) short career, entering the Guinness Book of World Records might be up there for her. Word has arrived that with the 2015 edition of the book that chronicles the best and most of everything, Lawrence will enter as the highest-grossing action heroine the “world has ever known.”
Sure, getting an Oscar nomination for her first big role in Winter’s Bone was nice. Winning an Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook was even better, and scoring her third nomination for American Hustle had to feel good.
But it’s her work on The Hunger Games films that has put her in the Guinness Book of World Records. And might we add, she’s only had two of those films (out of four) come out! So, by the time Mockingjay Part 1 and Part 2 come out, no one should be able to (financially) touch her as an action movie heroine for some time.
When The Hunger Games was done with its cinematic run, it had banked $691 million in global gross. Catching Fire arrived a year later and upped the ante to the tune of $864 million in international ticket sales.
That alone was enough to push her past some of the female action heroines of the past, such as Sigourney Weaver for her work on the Alien movies, Angelina Jolie and her work on Tomb Raider and Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Linda Hamilton and her two Terminator movies.
And witness Lawrence ready to rock in the third installment in the slideshow below!
Jennifer Lawrence is back as Katniss for her third turn as the rebel hero.
When Dredd arrived in 2012 we were completely taken by the Karl Urban characterization of the graphic novel character (check out our Dredd review). We were a little disappointed that audiences didn’t turn out in droves because it was one of the better action/sci-fi flicks of that year.
Now, we’ve got word from Urban himself that there might be a possibility we’d see him back in the suit and mask, but not in a sequel… and we love the sound of it.
Urban has been the franchise’s biggest supporter and rightfully so. As he told us in our Dredd Karl Urban interview, he adored the graphic novels as a kid and it was his dream to appear as Dredd on the big screen.
He believes in this character and thinks there is still an audience for it. So, what does the future hold?
Ironically, it will be a look back -- according to Urban. “It’s a definite possibility,” Urban told Chicago Comic-Con about the idea of a prequel.
"It's more likely that we'll do the Origins story, with Dredd trekking through the Cursed Earth to find the first Chief Judge Fargo."
Count us in, Urban! Until then, see what it is we love so much about this flick and watch Dredd online.
One of our Top 13 of 2014 so far, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, has arrived on DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download. And let us be the first to tell you, it is even better watching it the second time around. And with those bonus features and audio commentary tracks, the entire experience of watching Chris Evans in action is all the more enjoyable.
That first Captain America: The Winter Soldier trailer let audiences know immediately that this film from Anthony and Joe Russo would pick up right after The Avengers ended. Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow is with Cap and he’s working at S.H.I.E.L.D. in Washington, D.C. under the tutelage of Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury.
Evans’ Cap is still adjusting to being abruptly introduced to the 21st century, and when he meets Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson on the Mall in D.C., he opens up a notebook in which he is filling in things he needs to check out to further understand our (mostly pop) culture.
But Evans plays Cap now as firm in his ability to be in the present and The Winter Soldier is less a fish out of water story and more of an old-fashioned political corruption/conspiracy thriller and that is why it is utterly brilliant -- as we reported in our theatrical Captain America: The Winter Soldier review.
Captain America is drawn to the past due to the presence of a new foe, Sebastian Stan as The Winter Soldier. And yes, he sure looks an awful lot like Steve Rogers’ World War II buddy Bucky Barnes.
The level of power of these Marvel films has only increased with time and proof of that is the appearance of Oscar-winning legend Robert Redford in a pivotal role. And hearing the Russo brothers discuss that fact in one of the more stand-out features -- their audio commentary -- for the Captain America: The Winter Soldier DVD and Blu-Ray is just the tip of the iceberg of insight that they provide.
If you’ve seen the film already, start right off the bat watching the film again with their audio commentary because it is one of the better ones we’ve witnessed in some time. And if you haven’t seen Captain America: The Winter Soldier yet, then when you watch it a second time, listen to what the directors have to say, as it will only further enhance the viewing experience.
Speaking of bonus features, there are a slew of them and we have to highlight a few of our favorites.
On the Set with Anthony Mackie: Cut the Check! is an utter delight. Mackie could not have been a better choice to play Wilson, aka Falcon, and his filming journey is chronicled in this bonus feature.
We’ve loved Mackie's work for years and watching him work in the Marvel world is some serious success that has been a long time coming for the actor. And yes, his humor is ever present -- proved by the title of this featurette. Every time he gets a take right, he says, “Cut the check!” We actually kind of wish that Falcon was in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but we’ll settle for a repeat appearance in Captain America 3.
The featurette On The Front Line: An Inside Look at Captain America’s Battlegrounds shows another reason why this film is truly special. How much the Russo brothers used practical effects instead of CG is astounding and explains why the film has a real world feel that can often be missing from superhero movies. And who doesn’t like a making-of doc that allows the viewer to glean information about the making of the movie that cannot be found anywhere else!
Given that this is such a serious film with a serious larger message about government and corruption that feels extremely timely, the ten-minute blooper reel is an absolute laugh riot. It’s great to see our favorite stars (like Evans, Mackie and Johansson) crack themselves up at their own mistakes.
And as we mentioned previously that notebook that Rogers keeps that cues him into what types of popular culture icons he needs to experience to better fit into the 21st century, that’s explored further in the featurette Steve Rogers’ Notebook. What’s utterly fascinating about this is how the list was changed depending on which country the film was to be released in.
It’s just that kind of attention to detail and powerful forward thinking that makes Captain America: The Winter Soldier one of the best Marvel movies… ever.
The duo that works out together fights together! Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie star in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
In a piece of news that is more fun than real, Denzel Washington took part in an AMA Reddit Q&A to promote his film The Equalizer and it was the usual questions and answers until one fan posed a query that probably should have been asked 30 years ago.
Would he play James Bond?
“The next James Bond? They better hurry up! Yes I would! Who's doing James Bond now..Daniel Craig! Did they shoot another one? Everybody should tweet Denzel is James Bond! Send it to the studio! We start the Denzel is Bond campaign today!” he said.
“James Washington. Denzel Bond!”
We were compelled by the rumors about Idris Elba being James Bond before they eventually hired Daniel Craig (who is one of our faves).
So, the idea of a black Bond is not out of left field. Obviously there never has been one and as Ian Fleming wrote the character, that is not what he intended. But, then again, anything is possible. Fleming probably never imagined his character as Scottish either, a la Sean Connery!
The idea of Washington is fascinating also because there has also never been an American James Bond, and honestly, there probably never will be.
And that “better hurry up” part of his answer also speaks to why this wouldn’t work -- at the age of 63, Washington is a little too old to play the man with a license to kill. In the meantime, we’ll gladly see Washington in action -- as teased in The Equalizer trailer -- in his upcoming film, due September 26.
Meanwhile, Bond 24 is about to start shooting in London, with Craig wielding the weapon!
Watch Training Day online and check out Washington in action… right now!
It’s a hard knock life for the cast of Annie, as Sony has debuted the film’s poster.
The Annie remake stars Jamie Foxx as a man who wants to be mayor of New York City. When he saves an orphan (Annie, played by Beasts of the Southern Wild star Quvenzhané Wallis) from being hit by a van, the video goes viral.
His campaign staff (led by Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale) thinks that they can push this good will even more and suggests that Foxx’s Will Stacks invite Annie over for lunch. She plays him by telling him how much good publicity he’d get if she actually moves in – so she does!
Judging by the Annie trailer, the new version of the classic Broadway musical (which already had a film version in the '80s) has a more hip hop feel to it, and rightfully so. It rings true with more modern musical tones and messages that permeate throughout.
Check out the poster below of Annie and click through all of our Annie photos as you ready for the musical remake to land in theaters December 19. Oh, and how about the casting of Cameron Diaz as the evil orphanage leader, Miss Hannigan!
Robots in the movies can come in all sizes and are designed for a variety of means. We're quite fascinated when they are used as the main villain, or as a tool for the villain.
Watch The Terminator online and you know Arnold Schwarzenegger's first foray into the Terminator world had to make our list. I mean, that guy was relentless!
Then, there are the robots built to seek and destroy Morpheus and his crew when you watch The Matrix online. Those sentinels are designed with no other purpose than to just utterly ruin your day!
We found 15 of the worst movie robots -- and some make it hard to dislike them.
Like watch Blade Runner online and Rutger Hauer's Batty has his reasons for doing what he's doing. He just might be going about it in the completely wrong way.
Who else makes our list of the best of the worst?
Click through and witness our 15 worst movie robots... bad robot, bad!
No wonder Will Smith was nervous about those robots helping him (like the good Sonny). That I, Robot army was something vicious.
Hot on the news we reported yesterday about the 22 Jump Street DVD, we have word that Sony has green-lit 23 Jump Street and hired Rodney Rothman to write the first draft of the script that will be overseen by the directors of the first two films -- Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
Given the rich history that started with those 21 Jump Street quotes, Rothman has his work cut out for him.
Now, whether or not Channing Tatum’s Jenko and Jonah Hill’s Schmidt will be going to med school -- that we don’t know.
As you recall at the end of 22 Jump Street, Ice Cube (as Captain Dickson) informs Jenko and Schmidt, “You sons of bitches are going to medical school!”
If you also paid attention to the sequel that lampooned sequels, as the boys moved across the street to the Vietnamese church at 22 Jump Street, behind them was a sign that said, “Under Construction -- 23 Jump Street.” Maybe, just maybe, they’ll move there?
We’ll keep you posted as this project develops, and in the meantime, watch 21 Jump Street online and see how this fantastic farce got started.
And one last thing, check out this gif we got that is the closing credits of 22 Jump Street which lays out “plans” for all future sequels!
And don’t miss our slideshow of our favorite stills from 22 Jump Street below.
Tatum & Hill update Ice Cube, and from the looks of their board, it's not going so well.
Who could forget when Charlie Hunnam quit Fifty Shades of Grey? No one who followed the highly anticipated film version of E L James’ bestselling book surely could.
Hunnam was set to play Christian Grey and producers had to move quickly to replace him with Jamie Dornan who, as it appears from that Fifty Shades of Grey trailer, moved effortlessly into the role.
Now that Sons of Anarchy is beginning its final season and Hunnam is out promoting his hit show, he was asked about why he left Fifty Shades of Grey and there was much more to it than what he previously said -- his “immersive TV schedule.”
Turns out, it was much more of a deeply emotional and frankly physical reason Hunnam left the project that also stars Dakota Johnson.
"I was going to finish Sons at like 11 p.m. Friday night, get on the plane Saturday morning to Vancouver for Fifty, missing the whole first week of rehearsal and start shooting Monday morning,” Hunnam told Moviefone.
The star was committed to appear in the follow-up Crimson Peak for his Pacific Rim director, Guillermo del Toro.
“I was going to shoot that film (Fifty Shades of Grey), wrap that on the Wednesday, and the following Monday I was going to start shooting Crimson Peak in Toronto. I just had like ... frankly, something of a nervous breakdown."
Who can blame the guy for spreading himself too thin?
The reasons for him dropping out were much more personal and had a lot less to do with not liking the subject matter, or not wanting to face fans who could revolt if the film wasn’t good. It was simple devotion to a helmer who had meant a lot to him -- del Toro -- and an emotional stress that was bordering on completely unhealthy.
Watch Pacific Rim online and see why Hunnam kept his loyalty with del Toro!
And be sure to click through and check out his replacement, Dornan, as he tackles Fifty Shades of Grey in our slideshow below.
It must have been a wild night in Christian Grey's hotel room.
We know the title of the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, and we know that Johnny Depp will obviously be back, and so too will Keith Richards and Geoffrey Rush -- and possibly even Penelope Cruz. But what about Orlando Bloom?
“There have certainly been some discussions about it and I’m open to it,” Bloom said at an Oz Comic-Con event recently.
From the sounds of it, Bloom would welcome returning to the world that found him acting opposite one of his favorite co-stars in Depp.
“That whole experience working with Johnny (Depp) and (director) Gore (Verbinski) was really amazing for me,” Bloom admitted.
“I had a great time working with Johnny, one of the reasons I jumped at the opportunity (to be in the first Pirates) was because Johnny was involved. I was such a massive fan of Johnny Depp growing up so to get up close and personal to Johnny and see how he worked as an actor was just a massive gift.”
Look for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales on July 7, 2017. And watch Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl online.
It was probably supposed to be a secret, but when Harrison Ford broke his leg on a trap door on the Millennium Falcon, we knew that the iconic spaceship would be in Star Wars: Episode VII. Now, thanks to an industrious pilot in England, we have our first glimpse at Han Solo’s beloved “bucket of bolts.”
The Star Wars: Episode VII production is back on now that Ford has recovered from his Millennium Falcon injury and that means that Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and the rest of the Star Wars: Episode VII cast is back in action -- more than hitting their mark for the December 18, 2015 release date.
And might we just say that we love the idea that J.J. Abrams is using practical sets and not CG only to create some of our favorite and pop culture's most iconic items from the Star Wars universe.
Check out 9 things we want to see in Star Wars: Episode VII in our slideshow below!
We've heard that Harrison Ford's Han Solo has an enormous part in the seventh Star Wars movie. Ford would not have signed on to J.J. Abrams' film if that was not the case.
Lionsgate has announced plans and a release date for Now You See Me 2. The sequel to the surprise hit Now You See Me is set to premiere December 25, 2015 and will bring back the all-star cast including Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo and Dave Franco.
As teased in that riveting Now You See Me trailer, the 2013 film featured a quartet of magicians (Harrelson, Eisenberg, Fisher and Franco) who perform their stage show and simultaneously rob banks and other establishments blind.
Hot on their trail was investigator Ruffalo. Clearly, and no real spoilers here, they got away with it because they’ll be back in the sequel on Christmas Day in 2015.
What is surprising news, and a great announcement as well, is that Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Step Up Revolution) has been hired to direct. With his background in dance movies and big action franchises, the man knows how to weave thrills, suspense and effortless movements that will surely make all the action sequences feel ever so fluid.
Watch Now You See Me online and see what all the fuss is about, or watch it again to get ready for the big 2015 Christmas release!
When you mosey onto the set of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day at the famed Melody Ranch Studio in Newhall, California, it certainly feels a bit wild. This is a locale used for many Hollywood films, most recently Django Unchained.
But, if you keep driving past the Old West façade buildings, there exists a nice little “suburban neighborhood” where we find Jennifer Garner, Steve Carell, and the cast of the upcoming October 10 Disney film.
Today they’re working away in a house that serves as their cinematic family home. And yet, it still feels quite wild because on this day, director Miguel Arteta and his cast are filming a birthday party scene with a legion of real live Australian animals.
We have lots of coverage coming your way from our set visit, but first we start with the film’s stars. Carell and Garner were both keenly aware of the legendary children’s book series, as are most people with children the ages of both stars’.
“I had the book pretty much memorized,” Garner said and laughed. She said the film, as teased in the Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day trailer, goes for the feel of the books, rather than a direct interpretation.
“I know the book inside and out and I would say it's more 'inspired by' than anything. They did such a genius job of turning the story into a movie.”
The film is a fantastic effort by Disney to bring back the live action family movies that many of us grew up on. For Carell and Garner, that was one of the biggest appeals. As an appreciator of the books, Garner knows all too well why it will work well as a film.
“Kids love to have their feelings validated and acknowledged. I think the idea that you can just have a rotten day that is horrible that no one understands that is horrible from your point of view in every way feels good,” Garner said.
“My kids haven't seen a bad day in their lives if you look at it from a global perspective. But, for them, they've had some real hum-dingers so they love this.”
Carell appreciated being on the front lines of what he hopes is a live action family movie renaissance.
“There is sort of a void there. I don't see a lot of live action family movies. I don't want to call this a kids' movie because I truly don't think it is, I think it's funny enough to hold up for much more than kids, I think there is much more depth here, not to be too pretentious about it. I know my kids will really love this movie and that was a lot of my incentive to do it,” Carell said.
“It's very sweet but it's sweet without being overly sentimental. It's that fine line. You want it to be available to everybody but you also want it to kind of exist in the real world."
Garner agreed. “We grew up with Vacation, John Hughes and Escape to Witch Mountain, all of these big movies -- Splash even. These big family movies, they haven't existed in a really long time,” she added.
The two play parents to four kids and one is a baby! The film takes place on the day before and the day of Alexander’s birthday. And as the title suggests, it’s not a good day for Alexander. But, in a change from the book series, Alexander wishes that everyone in his family would know what a “bad day” is, and sure enough -- that happens!
Garner and Carell filled us in on what their characters do for a living. “I am literally a rocket scientist in this,” Carell said and laughed.
“I'm an unemployed rocket scientist, aerospace engineer. A stay-at-home dad right now and enjoying it, but frustrated at the same time because he feels the need to get out there and work and be supportive of his family financially.”
Garner’s character makes her living helping children’s lit books get marketed (kind of like the one the film is based on!). “I'm working in book publishing, kind of in marketing for book publishing.”
Both parents’ careers will be affected by this “Very Bad Day,” but they are doing their best. “We're parents to four kids and have jobs and busy lives and Alex is having a middle child moment and feeling left out,” Garner added.
One of the things they do to help Alexander with this horrible day is to throw him the birthday party of a lifetime. When we were on set, we got to tour Alexander’s bedroom and it’s easy to see, this kid is obsessed with Australia. So, when we head outside of the house into the backyard, those Australian animals makes perfect sense.
Both Carell and Garner were more than eager to work with animals (and children), despite what that old Hollywood adage says about working with them. “Well, animals are scary. You don't know exactly what they're going to do. You just get here and assume you're in good hands,” Garner said.
“The trainers are so good and they don't put you in jeopardy,” Carell added. “The fact that you have to improvise with animals is because they are unpredictable -- that can be really fun when something out of the ordinary happens and you capture something that is very real.”
Besides the great young cast, bringing a beloved children’s book to life and having fun with wild Australian animals on this particular day, Garner and Carell are fulfilling a longtime dream of appearing together onscreen. “I've wanted to work with her for so long. I don't care about the animals. I don't care about the babies -- just kidding,” Carell said and laughed.
“She’s a great actor but beyond that she's a really kind, wonderful person.”
For Garner, it all added up to one irresistible opportunity. “I love the title and the book and that Disney is making this, but really I thought, 'Oh finally, I'm going to get to work with Steve. Done. Sign me up,” Garner said.
She was just ready to finally appear with the comic master. “We've had a really good time. Working with Steve has by far been the best part of the whole thing.”
And stay with Movie Fanatic for more coverage from our visit to the set of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day!
The "Before" poster shows what life is like, and how Alexander is the one set for a bad day.
And if it looks like she’s ready for battle, that is because she clearly is.
We’ve also got an added treat today as we’ve got our hands on the “countdown” teaser for the next Mockingjay Part 1 trailer, which is set to land in five days on September 15.
There is not much to the teaser below, but the moment where Katniss finds a white rose where she least expects it... now that, that is truly haunting!
Mockingjay Part 1 lands in theaters November 21, and for fans of The Hunger Games, that cannot arrive soon enough.
Here’s something to keep you occupied till the resistance begins, watch Catching Fire online!
The Katniss Mockingjay Part 1 poster is here! She's ready to take flight!
We’ve got our hands on not only the first poster for Keanu Reeves’ assassin thriller John Wick, but also the first photo!
Reeves plays an ex-hitman who comes out of retirement when a group of gangsters takes everything he cares about and utterly destroys his world.
Justice is on the menu for Wick, and when Reeves’ trained killer is wronged, people pay.
The film lands October 24 and also stars Alfie Allen, Adrianne Palicki (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), Ian McShane, Bridget Moynahan, John Leguizamo and Willem Dafoe.
Idris Elba has become not only one of the most in demand actors of his generation, but also an audience favorite. He usually plays heroes or the protagonist at the least. But as you can see from the No Good Deed trailer, he is clearly the villain.
And what a bad guy he is -- goodness!
We caught up with Elba for an exclusive video interview where he talked about the finer points of playing a character in No Good Deed with a penchant for evil and how that provides him as an actor even more to work with. Is it good to be bad?
“Yes, it is. You get to play more colors in the character,” Elba said. “Good guys get the best lines, but the bad guys get the best physics -- you get to do some crazy stuff.”
Elba also dishes the joy of working with his co-star Taraji P. Henson, who he terrorizes in No Good Deed, a home invasion jaw-dropper that will keep audiences guessing... right up until the thrilling end!
Don’t miss No Good Deed in theaters September 12 and stay with Movie Fanatic for our exclusive chat with Elba’s co-star Henson tomorrow!
And watch Pacific Rim online to see Elba play the other side of the coin as a hero!
Recently we ran a story about how a few fan favorite characters from Ted were returning for Ted 2. Today we have news that is just this side of awesome. Oscar winner Morgan Freeman has joined the cast of the Seth MacFarlane follow-up to the movie that gave us those killer Ted quotes.
Freeman is set to star as a famous civil rights lawyer, who actually defends Ted when the foul-mouthed teddy bear has his rights infringed. It should be a compelling (and hilarious) storyline -- as we all know, talking teddy bears should have the same rights as all of us.
Now, what spawns this case is of course a secret, but we cannot wait to see Mark Wahlberg come back as John and Seth MacFarlane return as the voice of Ted.
Mila Kunis will be missed, although the casting of Amanda Seyfried as John’s girlfriend is also quite perfect.
Watch Ted online as we get ready for the return of Ted in Ted 2 on June 26, 2015.
Fresh off that The Maze Runner trailer that spelled out the rules for this wild looking original story based on the book by James Dashner, we have a clip that shows what happens to stars Dylan O’Brien and Ki Hong Lee when they take a go at the treacherous landscape that is the titular real world puzzle.
The Maze Runner story is told from the point of view of O’Brien’s Thomas. He awakes in an underground elevator that is taking him to the surface. When he gets there, he’s among a group of boys his age, all who share his lack of knowledge of how they got there and more importantly, anything that came before this present moment.
They are surrounded by a monolithic maze that is the only way out. The only problem, no one that has gone in has ever come out. And after checking out our above clip, it’s easy to see why. That thing is nasty!
The Maze Runner lands in theaters September 19 and also features a star-making turn from Will Poulter! Check out our slideshow of The Maze Runner posters and stills from the highly anticipated flick.
A maze-like figure is a beauty of a poster idea for The Maze Runner.

This Is Where I Leave You Synopsis:
The dramatic comedy This is Where I Leave You is directed by Shawn Levy, and based on the hilarious and poignant best-selling novel by Jonathan Tropper. It features a starring ensemble cast, including Golden Globe winner Jason Bateman (Arrested Development); Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Tina Fey (30 Rock); and two-time Oscar winner, multiple Golden Globe honoree and Emmy Award nominee Jane Fonda (Klute, Coming Home, HBO’s The Newsroom).
When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide -- driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.
The film also stars Adam Driver (Girls), Rose Byrne (Neighbors, Bridesmaids), Corey Stoll (House of Cards, Midnight in Paris), Kathryn Hahn (Parks and Recreation), Connie Britton (Nashville), Timothy Olyphant (Justified), Dax Shepard (Parenthood), Debra Monk (Damages), Abigail Spencer (Rectify), and Ben Schwartz (House of Lies).
This is Where I Leave You was written by Jonathan Tropper, based on his novel. It was produced by Paula Weinstein (The Perfect Storm, HBO’s Recount) Shawn Levy, and Jeffrey Levine (HBO’s Too Big to Fail). Mary McLaglen (Real Steel, The Proposal) and Jonathan Tropper served as executive producers.
The creative filmmaking team included director of photography Terry Stacey (Safe Haven, 50/50), production designer Ford Wheeler (Rachel Getting Married), editor Dean Zimmerman (Real Steel), and costume designer Susan Lyall (RED). The music was composed by Oscar winner Michael Giacchino (Up).
